# Implementing the Activity Based Costing (ABC) System

See the attached file.
Jarme Company makes two products and is implementing an Activity Based Costing (ABC) system. Previously, all overhead had been applied on the basis of machine hours. The Company produces 100,000 units of product D and 5,000 units of product F.
Cost Pool Driver and Level Cost in Pool Use of Driver by Product D Use of Driver by Product F
Equipment Setup 500 setups \$1,000,000 350 setups 150 setups
Materials Ordering 10,000 orders \$2,000,000 7,000 orders 3,000 orders
Quality Control 4,000 inspections \$500,000 2,000 inspections 2,000 inspections
Machining 50,000 machine hours \$5,000,000 40,000 machine hours 10,000 machine hours

1. What is the overhead cost per unit for Product D when all overhead is applied based on machine hours?
A. \$170
B. \$68
C. \$340
D. \$40

2. What is the overhead cost per unit for Product F using ABC?
A. \$63.50
B. \$430

5. What is the overhead cost per unit for Product F when all overhead is applied based on machine hours?
A. \$170
B. \$340
C. \$68
D. \$200

6. What is the overhead cost per unit for Product D using ABC?
A. \$63.50
B. \$430
C. \$68
D. \$340

7. . Using ABC, what is the cost per machine hour in the Machining pool?
A. \$100
B. \$4,000,000
C. \$47.62
D. \$2,000.
